Security Groups after Active Directory Migration using ADMT

This past weekend we migrated our Security Groups and Users from "Domain.Old" to "Domain.New".  We also migrated "FileServer1" (Windows 2k3 Server) to "Domain.New" all using the ADMT.

For some of the shares in "FileServer1," the permissions migrated just as we expected and now show "Domain.Old\Security Group" and "Domain.New\Security Group".  Because many folders were not set to inherit, the Security Groups for Domain.New were not added on this server.

Without managing each of these folders one-by-one, how can we update them so that if "Domain.Old\Security Group" is present it adds the corresponding "Domain.New\Security Group"

Unfortunately I don't believe there is an easy way to do what you are asking.

The good news is as long as SID history was retained when you migrated the groups, the permissions will remain in tact anywhere on windows file systems.

If you are adamant about getting them switched you may be able to use SetACL.

Here is some documentation on that.

This was interesting reading but felt I would be better to manually updated these permissions.  Thanks for your suggestion though.
